Hi Cendio Community,
Long-time follower of this product and soon to be a first time user of it.
In my currently position, I support mathematicians from around the world on Springdale Linux, which is a Linux distro based off of RHEL. The overwhelming majority of our mathematicians use the office computer that we supply them or their own personal equipment to perform their research.
We are looking for Cendio to provide remote access to math software apps while the mathematicians are both on and off campus. We expect the initial load to be ~ 10 - 20 users. They will be using a variety of applications including, but not limited to: TeXLive and various editors, Mathematica, Maple, Matlab, Firefox, Chrome, Thunderbird, Evince, Okular, Zoom, VLC, LibreOffice, etc.
I’ve read through the Cendio Server Requirements info (3.2. Server Requirements) and am now coming up with some initial hardware configurations. We are a Dell shop, so I’ve been looking at the following:
2 - Intel® Xeon® Gold 6230 2.1G, 20C/40T, 10.4GT/s, 27.5M Cache, Turbo, HT
256 GB RAM
RAID 1 HD Config - not sure storage needs right now; user home directories mounted on NAS.
Broadcom 57416 Dual Port 10GbE BASE-T & 5720 Dual Port 1GbE BASE-T, rNDC
Dual Power Supplies
For those of you that have used this product for some time now, I’d appreciate some guidance on this. Any recommendations or suggestions you can offer would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks and best wishes,
